• Mini Workouts 20.10.2010

    If you have decided that you have had enough of looking frumpy and fat and you are determined to be toned, healthy and lose weight, well done, I applaud you! The hardest step to take is the first one, and you have just done that.

    Be aware that there is a lot of information out there and not all of it will work for you. There are fat burning workouts that work well and some that do not. I have been working out for over 20 years and have found out what works and I would like to share that with you.

    I have been to the gym doing the standard type of workout, and I do not recommend that you do that when there is another way that works better.

    Your standard gym workout probably goes something like this:

    Start with 20-30 minutes of warm up and cardio on a stationery exercise-cycle or treadmill (or other similar machine)

    Next, 3 sets of 8-12 repetitions working out with weights doing resistance training for different muscle groups

    Finally a further 15-20 minutes on the bike or rower as a cool down

    Are you familiar with this?

    You can get results following this workout routine (as long as you keep at it faithfully), but why not work out more effectively over less time?

    One of the disadvantages of being on the treadmill for the length of time advised in a standard workout is that the jarring on the joints on a regular basis can have a negative effect long-term on those joints. Also, doing the same thing each time does not necessarily challenge your body. It just plateaus out and you stop losing weight.

    To get your body to grow it needs to be continually challenged. It uses a survival mechanism where the body rises to the challenge by building strength and then the workout continues to challenge the body, so that it continues to build strength.

    The trick here is to work smarter and not harder, and over a shorter period.

    Your workout needs to consist of intense resistance training 3 times a week. Each session needs to cover your whole body and each rest period between sets needs to be 30 seconds or less. By limiting the rest time, you actually have a great cardio workout during the entire session.

    If you are performing each movement correctly and making them slow controlled movements to the point of failure (in other words you could not manage one more repetition), one set for each muscle group will be more than enough. By maxing out your muscles, you are challenging them. By incorporating cardio in your resistance training, you are reducing wear and tear on your joints, and you are saving time on each session.

    If you are new to working out or even if you have been working out for ten plus years or more like me, try these fat burning workouts and see the change in your physical shape in less time than you expect.

    Do a great thing for yourself today and begin to reshape a new and healthy you.
